The Waiting Nail
Nienke Sybrandy's works arise from observations of daily life: small events at home, street images, actions and traditions. Her favourite materials, her muse, are objects that are so self-evident that they are overlooked. She lifts them out of the shadows and place them in the light, so that their hidden meaning becomes visible. Each object is a bearer of stories and symbols. A nail on an empty wall becomes a sign of hope and desire. It casts its shadow on the emptiness and patiently awaits the art that will come.
